NASA's UASP-kit Showcased During Executive Roundtable Discussions and Demonstrations for Wildfire Management
(Apr 21, 2023)
On April 13, Deputy Administrator Pam Melroy, Associate Administrator Bob Cabana, Center Director Eugene Tu, and Ames Deputy Center Director Carol Carroll, hosted U.S. Reps. Anna G. Eshoo and Zoe Lofgren, as well as members from industry, academia, philanthropy, and other government agencies, for an an Executive Roundtable for Wildfire Management. Following the discussion, roundtable participants attended a technology showcase in the N248 hangar to highlight Ames' research and technology development in both aeronautics and earth science, alongside industry capabilities in wildfire management.

The first stop in the showcase was the UAS Pilot Kit (UASP-kit), demonstrating the latest developments in airspace management and human systems integration research. The UASP-kit was developed by the Airspace Operations Lab (AOL) in support of NASA's Scalable Traffic Management for Emergency Response Operations (STEReO) project. The UASP-kit uses locally sourced information to provide airspace proximity alerts to UAS crews operating in locations where very little, or no, communications network is available.

The AOL continues this important work with their partners under the Wildfire Airspace Management group within the Advanced Capabilities for Emergency Response Operations (ACERO) project.
